GENEALOGY RESEARCH TIP OF THE DAY:
Lines Over a Letter in a Name?
If you see a single line over one letter in a name in a document, it usually means that the letter was actually used twice in the name and not just once.
This notation was not used everywhere, but this illustration shows a "Fanny" written as "Fany" with a line over the "n."
